Hi...I got a surprise BFP last Wednesday, then started to spot this past cramps, just spotting. Went to my midwife on Tuesday she did betas & an internal. She for ectropic cells on my cervix that were easy to bleed she said so attributed the spotting to cervical bleeding and sent me home. My hcg was a little over 3300 and my progesterone was 11.4. I am 5 1/2 weeks. I went back for another draw a little less than 48 hours later and my levels were a little over 4900. The midwife that called with my results was rather rude and said that my levels hadn't doubled so that was a very bad sign....then a little while later my regular mdiwife called back and said that what I had been told was wrong and that after 1200 the doubling rate often my levels were considered okay. I had a little more spotting so they started me on Prometrium today, and have referred me to maternal fetal medicine for an u/s which I just scheduled for June 25th. I am a nervous wreck:(

thanks ladies...spotting is just so nerve wracking. I was reassured to here that the numbers do slow down, so I am keeping my fingers crossed. far no spotting since this morning, although I am really not a fan of the icky Prometrium I will happily deal with it if it keeps me here :)

I'm on progesterone too and it's horrible. I swear it's making me sicker than I actually am. On the plus side my spotting stopped almost as soon as it started so there's a silver lining.

I hope it works for you too!

Best wishes for your LO, why are some healthcare providers so rude to hormonal women?!
